AQUABIKE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP: ITALY

GRAND PRIX OF ITALY

porto_cesareo

This year, the Italy's Grand Prix of JetSki, the famous Aquabike tournament, will take place in one of the most paradisiac beaches in Italy: Porto Cesareo. It sits in a prestigious part of Italy’s Ionian coast, enjoying a long stretch of beach and sparkling clean seas. The popular seaside resort has an amazing 17kms of golden beach facing an archipelago of low-lying islands that form a protected bay, a beautiful small port, and a marina.

Porto Cesareo is also the home of a nature preserve that is a marine protected area rich in flora and fauna with very rare species. Underwater excursions allow for viewing of the unique coral formations, turtles, sea horses, and other marine life.

Low rocky bluffs offer coves and snorkeling holes. Porto Cesareo has a beach-town atmosphere with loads of restaurants, cafes and some discos. The main focus is on the water and the beach, and the townspeople maintain their active fishing fleet, along with agricultural endeavors on the fertile plains that stretch inland behind the town.

I simply love Jet Skis. When I was in Brazil I used to have a Kawasaki 650 from 1991 with a few preparations and modifications. My friends and I were pretty good riding it and doing some maneuvers. Because of that, my favorite category is Freestyle but I also like watching the races.

If you are in south Italy I highly recomend going to this event. The competition will take place from June 1st until June 4th.
